Make decorative bows - how to use a Bowdabra

This entry was posted September 17, 2020

Bowdabra is an ingenious, efficient and user-friendly tool that allows you to tie a bow in a myriad of cool looks, colours and sizes - a must have!

What is a Bowdabra?

A Bowdabra is a tool made of plastic that makes it easy to tie a beautiful and decorative bow for gift-wrapping, decorations etc. - an indispensable extra hand!

Bowdabra is pronounced the same way as abracadabra. It was invented by Sandy Sandler in the late 1990s.

How does a Bowdabra work?

  1. The first step is to place a piece of ribbon into the Bowdabra.
    This is used to tie together all the layers of the bow when it is finished.

  2. The next step is to fold ribbons of your choosing - tulle ribbon, organza, etc. - and place them perpendicular to the first piece of ribbon.
    Combine different widths, materials, and colours to create an intricate bow.

  3. When you are done, use the little plastic rod to squeeze the layers together.

  4. Now, tie it all together using the first piece of ribbon you placed into the Bowdabra.

  5. Take the bow out of the Bowdabra and separate the layers to add volume.

That's it! You can make beautiful bows that easy.
